I'm trying to figure out what years of cubs had 6volt batteries and which had 12 volt batteries and which years had positive ground and which had negative ground. I'm a little confused on which had what. I have a 1971 cub I just got and I wanted to make sure it is right.

Hi Hoss. The change to 12v was made in the middle of 1964. I think you can ground whichever you'd like. I just make sure the connections are correct at the coil and then polarize the generator. I hope this helps!

all 6 volt from the factory were positive ground up to 63, all 12 volt cubs factory made are negative ground

I'd say it's a safe bet your 1971 is a 12 Volt negative ground system. I'm not sure which year they changed from gen to alt. I have a 1966 Cub that came with a gen and my 1976 came with an alt. Both are negative ground. Hope this sheds a little light on the subject, Thanks, Tom.
